“What If I Told You That I Loved You” by Ali Gatie
In “What If I Told You That I Love You”, Ali Gatie is addressing an ex-girlfriend. On one hand, he seems to be under the impression that maybe she deceived him in terms of how she felt about him in the past. But on the other, as illustrated by the title, he also believes that he did not adequately show her how much he cared for her while they were actually together.
Or stated differently, he is wondering if the outcome of their relationship would have been different if he had told her back then that he loved her. But at the same, he is also trying to imagine how she would react if he were to express such in the here and now. Would she likewise respond that she loves and misses him also?
So all things considered, perhaps the best way to describe this Ali Gatie track is one in which he has lost the woman he loves. Indeed she has already moved on to another man. And the titular question more or less represents his attempts to ascertain the possibility of getting her back.
Did Ali Gatie write “What If I Told You That I Love You”?
Yes. However, Ali didn’t write this tune all by himself. He received help from two following writers/producers:
- Danny B. Styles
- Sam Wish
In addition to penning the song, the trio also produced it. They are therefore the song’s only official writers and producers.
Warner Records released the tune on 24 January 2020.
